BREAD rolls became hedgehogs, reptiles and dogs in the hands of junior cooks at a Bognor Regis school.

The creative chefs at Laburnum Grove Junior School found out to how to create their own food in a lesson with three members of Bognor Regis WI.

One of the pupils, Stephanie Phillips, nine, said: “We weighed 100g of flour and made it into different shapes and put different toppings on. I like making different foods because you learn about the temperatures.

“You get to see if the food is nice. If it isn’t, you can change it. I think my favourite meal I have made is the meatballs and pasta I had last night.”

Stephanie was among 25 children from Year Four who took part in cookery class.

Teaching assistant Lorraine Canter said: “This is giving them hands-on experience about how food is made.

“It’s about showing them where food comes from and giving them the chance to try food which they might not get at home.

“Because they have made it, they will want to eat it.”

WI member Kate Claisse said: “We like the idea of passing on cooking skills to the younger generation.”

The children had also gone on a Farm to Fork visit as part of their food project
